Suburban Hospital's Cancer Care program is dedicated to preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer for residents in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region. In partnership with community physicians, staff, other health care providers and research affiliates, the Cancer Program provides a comprehensive range of high quality, compassionate and cost-effective services, including health education, screening, clinical research, diagnosis, treatment, psychosocial support and palliative care.

Suburban's Hospital Cancer Program is committed to the early detection of certain cancers. At the two free skin cancer screenings held in 2019, 75 community members were examined by board-certified dermatologists. Four basal cell carcinomas and two squamous cell carcinomas were detected. In addition, 14 community members were screened for oral, head and neck cancers by board-certified otolaryngologists; two with abnormal findings were referred for further evaluation.

Our many centers of care provide an integrated response to illness, applying sophisticated radiation therapy technology and cutting-edge imaging such as PET scanning. Our program addresses all forms of cancer, with the emphasis on the major adult solid malignancies: breast, colon, lung and prostate, as well as head and neck. 

We realize you have a choice in where you go for health care, and we strive to be your preferred hospital, right here in your neighborhood.
